How To Encourage The Savings Habit: A Shockingly Simple Solution


ModernMediaPic

Today's income-hungry investors and savers are drastically short of options if they look to the mainstream market. Some £1.4 trillion is currently wasting away on cash deposit earning an average of less than 0.4 per cent, according to Building Society Association figures.

Our friends at P2P Finance News bring us a report, excerpted below, that poses a question whose answer is so obvious it makes us smile (Hint: it's higher interest rates! But never forget security and access, as detailed below).

THE TREASURY Committee has announced plans to look into the level of savings among households and what would make them save more.

MPs in the select committee have unveiled an inquiry into household finances that will scrutinise problematic indebtedness, inter-generational issues, lifetime financial planning, and the effectiveness of the market in providing solutions and products to low income households.

The Committee will look at what the "right" level of savings is in the current economic conditions and how well products such as ISAs are targeted.

It will also assess whether the overall level of UK household debt and consumer credit is sustainable and how much of it is problematic.
